Mr. Tech says:

I will now be buying the MacBook Pro instead of the fully loaded MacBook Air because of this!

Wongdi Sherpa says:

My previous generation satechi USB-C hub interferes with wifi connection whenever I connect it with peripherals. Does it have the same problem or its just USB-C thing. Or should I use adapter from apple itself to not interrupt my connection?

Clark Smith says:

Aren’t there multiples hubs exactly like this? What’s the difference? They look just the same to me.

Charles SAP says:

Can this be used on the HP spectre?

Bader Alazmi says:

works on 2017?

jan zabłocki says:

I will buy that adapter,
but first I will have to have a MacBook pro 2016/2017.
In other words, never 🙁

Aleksei Dmitriev says:

I’d rather buy the previous generation mac with all the ports than bother myself buying all these shitty hubs. Otherwise, a very nice review. Thank you.

+iDB Is good or not this hub after this month?

Z Livermorium says:

You mentioned if MacBook Pro is powered through the thunderbolt 3 port on this thing, you can’t power a display. But a thunderbolt 3 display should be able to power a Mac as the LG 5k display does. Isn’t it? So you should not worry about connecting a thunderbolt 3 display and powering the MacBook pro at the same time. On the other hand, if you are NOT using a thunderbolt or usb type c display, you probably gonna use HDMI anyway, so you don’t need to use another converter. The downside, in my opinion, is that the HDMI port only outputs 4k at 30fps, which is a old standard. Now all the new monitors have HDMI 2.0 that supports 4k @ 60fps and higher resolution, so I think they definitely should have included HDMI 2.0.

Qing Yao says:

It’s exactly same thing as Hyperdrive from Hyper.

Merc Impulse says:

Does it overheat?

Lego Play Time says:

I honestly prefer Satechi’s other standard wire dongle, which has similar I/O, but doesn’t use both Thunderbolt 3 ports.
